President Obama Steps Up To Save The Economy & The Climate While Republicans No Longer Relevant
I wholeheartedly applaud, support and endorse President Barack Obama’s signing of the $787 billion economic recovery bill just moments ago. I cheer his rapid action less than a month after taking office to start getting us out of the Bush Depression – both literally and figuratively.
This bill is not only the most sweeping economic recovery package in our nation’s history, it’s also the greenest.
Fortunately for all of us, climate change guru, Joe Romm of Climate Progress, has already done the heavy lifting and outlined just how green and positive this new bill is. Read:
Smart Grid/Advanced Battery Technology/Energy Efficiency
Tax Incentives to Spur Energy Savings and Green Jobs
Landmark Energy Savings at Home
Repairing Public Housing and Making Key Energy Efficiency Retrofits to HUD-Assisted Housing
Investing in Scientific Research (More than $15 Billion)
And for those of us who believe that the future of the auto industry involves a plug and a battery – Plug In America just released their press release with the following headline:
Plug In America Hails Plug-in Electric Car Aid in Stimulus Bill
Consumers to Benefit from Tax Relief, More Green Jobs
And if all of this wasn’t enough to change the course of our current headlong drive to climate catastrophe this bill wasn’t the only landmark green achievement by the Obama Administration today. The coal industry is about to get what’s coming to them and not a moment too soon. The EPA is about to start regulating deadly CO2 greenhouse gas emissions from coal fired power plants. This is very bad news for the bad guys.
The tide has started to turn this day. As usual the mainstream media and the promoters of greed among us are several steps behind. But mark this day on your calendar, because a new era of history has begun.
The cluetrain is stopping at your station my friends, but it’s up to you to get on board. Some people never will.
